Installing emrys for users


User subcommands have been tested with ubuntu 16.04 and macOS. There are no additional software dependencies for users, simply install the CLI.

Downloading & installing emrys

The following scripts require root privileges to install emrys into /usr/local/bin. If you prefer to avoid using sudo, simply install the executable into a different folder that doesn’t require root (say ~/bin - but don’t forget to add it to $PATH!)


$ curl | \
   sudo tar -C /usr/local/bin -xzf -


$ curl | \
   sudo tar -C /usr/local/bin -xzf -

Test the installation
